Trilogy of Tears

Part 1: The Tears

 

Right now I’m in a state of mind

That I never want to be

God if you’re up there listening

Have mercy on this planet and me

 

Tragedy strikes when you least expect

Bursts through the ground, destroying the blooming flower

When life nearly slips through your hands

You start to realize your lack of power

 

Twenty-two angels gone too soon

Five-hundred angels with battle scars to keep

And then there’s me, one broken heart

Who has been robbed of her sleep

 

Everywhere I go

There’s reminders to be found

Of the hatred and intolerance

That burned hope to the ground

 

I try my best to cover up

To be strong for those who need me

But even when i try to rise above

The despair just doesn’t leave me

 

So I turn the faucet all the way

Internalize the pain of my fallen angels

And cry puddles throughout the day

Away from prying eyes to see

 

Part 2: The Cave

 

It was a desperate time

I had to disappear

Stow away in a cave i built

Holding those i love near

 

The everlasting feeling of desolation

Had a grip on me so strong

That i had to go into isolation

To learn to live with this wrong

 

Wrestling with the darkness

And the sound of the aftermath

How could one be so heartless?

To spare no innocents from their attack

 

Through all the darkness shined a single light

Urging me to not give up this fight

The love and affection of those who adored me

Nourishing, gentle, sweet

 

The sound of music slowly began to return

And I rose like a phoenix from the ashes of my heart

Changed but yet the same

It was time for a brand new start

 

I’ve got to wrestle with this mentality

The time is now, to break free

 

Part 3: No Tears Left to Cry

 

Right now, I’m in a state of mind

I wanna be in like all the time

Ain’t got no tears left to cry

So I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up

I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up…
